1900 Tasting Notes
This was an impulse purchase since my track record with RoT has not been so great. My review is for the loose leaf version of the tea.
Upon opening the tin I see a Chinese green tea that has some long and slender pieces, but I can’t place what tea this is by looking at it. There appear to be a few ginger root pieces here and there in the blend.
I’ve actually had this a few times in the past week… the green tea is mildly vegetal but there is not enough ginger here to be calling it a ginger peach tea. Also I feel the peach flavor is artificial and tart so I’m not loving this particular blend. I will probably finish it off someday as it’s decent enough. I think I’ll try a cold brew tonight and see what happens.
Kind of overpriced and average-ish which is my impression of RoT generally. ;-)
This was an impulse buy I got at the grocery store yesterday, I really like rooibos chai blends and I thought I’d check this out.
Aside from the rooibos, it also has cinnamon, clove and ginger so to me it seemed more like a gingerbread type of tea than a strict chai. I used two teabags for a mug of tea and still thought it was a bit weak. It isn’t bad considering the price I paid for it, but next time I would use a smaller cup. I like this one better with soymilk in it. A decent tea for fall, very strong on the cinnamon and clove. Rooibos blends tend to be better when you steep them a while.
Tea of the morning and it’s a sipdown. I’m all done with this yummy tea from Della Terra but am looking at buying some holiday teas right now :)
This has a sweet pumpkin flavor and is pretty goo with a bit of stevia, this is the 2nd time I have purchased it from Della Terra. See previous notes for more details.
It’s a sipdown for me and this tea!
This was pretty good for a dessert tea, I have enjoyed it. Not sure I need more but might be a re-purchase next time I order something from Simpson and Vail. It’s good with a little stevia to perk it up a bit. Kind of an odd choice for breakfast but it works for me…
I may be getting weird in my old age but I am always seeing these chia seed infused juice drinks around and I thought I would try making a chia iced tea.
I cold brewed this overnight and added the chia seeds this morning. After letting them sit for a few hours they got nice and plump. It’s kind of tasty, albeit slimy. It you try this I would recommend shaking the drink every once in a while to prevent the chia seeds from clumping together.
I have rather enjoyed this and will probably get more someday. I’m not a huge fan of Keemun but somehow it works here with the Nilgiri and Ceylon. I wouldn’t have thought of putting those together myself but it’s a tasty blend.
I’m happy to have my Silk Soymilk back for tea. Regarding plant based milks, I keep trying different ones and Silk Soymilk is definitely the best one for tea, it doesn’t impart much of a flavor but it makes things nice and creamy.
Tea of the eveing here. I’m not exactly ready for the holidays but I was ready for dessert. Lately I’ve been trying to banish all sweets from the house which is probably good for my waistline. this is a nice substitute, especially with a little bit of soymilk and stevia, which is how I like to drink it. I wonder if I will finish off my box from last year before Christmas? In any case, I’m kind of looking forward to the holiday teas.
Tea of the morning here. I’m not usually a sencha in the morning type of gal, but I’m all out of soy milk and the flax milk I last got at Whole Foods was so disgusting I threw it out. Mostly sugar and additives. Blecch! Anyway this is a nice sencha especially if you prefer things a it more on the mellow side. I should probably make a point to finish this off soon although it’s been sitting in my refrigerator, I hope that keeps it fresh for longer.
Tea of the mid-morning here. This stuff is good but I don’t really like it plain, I blended mine with some soymilk so create a latte. I haven’t been using this too much, the macadamia matcha got consumed a long time ago. I should find a dessert I could make with this matcha, now that it’s fall… a nice treat for the weekend
Tea of the morning here, somehow I needed to just reach for a favorite. This is such a tasty and comforting assam for me. My boss has had a cold all week and I got it now too, life has been frustrating me lately with various and sundry health issues but at least there’s good tea to cheer me up. :)
